LaTonya Yvette, the blogger and stylist behind the eponymous site, is unapologetically candid about lifeâs trials, including motherhood, love, death, and racism. Her first book,Â Woman ofÂ Color, is part memoir, part lifestyle guideâpacked with moving essays, gorgeous original and archival photographs, and practical style and beauty advice. At the very heart, though, itâs about LaTonyaâs experience growing up as a woman of color in Brooklyn.
Each beautifully designed chapter covers a different topicâthe meaning behind her name, how vitiligo has shaped her definition of beauty, her childhood hairstyles, raising her children as a 20-something momâand ends with thoughtful advice and lifestyle takeaways like how to tie a headwrap or incorporate new, bold colors into your wardrobe.Â Woman of ColorÂ is real life, real style for women from all walks of life. In it, LaTonya has written a love letter to women, filling this book with vulnerable, imperfect truths from a black woman blogger, a voice not often seen on bookstore shelves.
